Susan describes the astonishing experience of gaining 3D stereovision after a lifetime of seeing in only two dimensions.
After intensive vision therapy, Susan was able to experience a new view of the world. Challenging conventional wisdom that the brain is programmed for life during a critical period in childhood, Susan offers a poignant account of our capacity for change “The snow was falling lazily around me in large, wet flakes.
I could see the space between each flake, and all the flakes together produced a beautiful three-dimensional dance. In the past, the snow would have appeared to fall in a flat sheet in one plane slightly in front of me. I would have felt like I was looking in on the snowfall.
But, now, I felt myself within the snowfall, among the snowflakes. I watched the snow fall for several minutes, and, as I watched, I was overcome with a deep sense of joy.
A snowfall can be quite beautiful - especially when you see it for the first time.
